Desktop-Virtualization1

Since the beginning, desktops have caused endless hassles for small businesses like yours. Aggravations such as fixing a PC after a virus has been downloaded or having to upgrade all the Windows machines to Windows 10 or just the fact that managing PCs is time consuming and distracting for whoever handles it, taking them away from more important duties.

The reality, that manufacturers have failed to share with us in their marketing, is that managing desktops is a never ending aggravation. The good news is that today there is a solution to your frustration. The solution is a Virtual Desktop and it may just be what the doctor ordered.

Virtual Desktops have been around for several years, however, recent trends in Cloud computing, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and advances in virtualization technology have made Virtual Desktops a viable option for a small-and-medium-sized business like yours. Making it possible to finally let go of your many desktops and making life easier for everyone.

The following is an overview of what benefits you can expect from utilizing Virtual Desktops for your business.

Cost Savings

By migrating to Virtual Desktops, you can extend the life of your existing desktops and postpone large capital expenditures like purchasing new desktops or on-premise servers.

Control

With Virtual Desktops you are also in more control than with traditional desktops. Your important data is stored centrally giving you the ability to control and adjust access to the applications or data.

Security

Virtual Desktops also provide multiple layers of security. The data centers, where the servers that run the Virtual Desktops are located, are protected 24/7 by live security guards. Furthermore, access to the Virtual Desktop is encrypted and thus protected. Data is backed up regularly and retained per your unique requirements.

Agility

Virtual Desktops also give your business more agility and flexibility. For instance, new software can be rolled out quickly and software updates are done automatically through a centralized management dashboard.

In addition, with Virtual Desktops you can give your employees, contractors, volunteers, access to your applications and data (you decide who as access to applications and data) using their own devices (a.k.a. Bring Your Own Device). By doing this, your employees can securely use your data and applications regardless if they use a Windows laptop, Mac or Apple iPad, or their own laptop, or work from home on their desktop.

Lastly, if a natural disaster, weather, or sickness prevents your workers from getting to the office, you have flexibility to allow remote work from any location without hampering productivity.

Productivity

With Virtual Desktops, every one of your employee can be productive from anywhere, anytime through virtually any device. Whether it is a laptop, desktop, iPad, or Android device – your employees can get to their business applications and be as productive as they would be if they were in the office in front of a PC.

Lastly, with Virtual Desktops your IT gets easier too. You can choose to co-manage or hand over management of the Virtual Desktops to companies like Webhosting.Net. Either way, Virtual Desktops lower your capital expenditures and give you better control, security, agility, and productivity than ever before.

vdi plansOffloading graphic processing for virtual desktop interfaces (VDI) allows such virtualized computer environments to support graphics intensive applications. While graphics acceleration is embedded into billions of consumer and business devices, including smartphones, laptops and workstations, it has not natively been built into virtual desktop interfaces. As a result, users of graphically-intense programs such as geospatial applications and 3-D rendering have been denied the flexibility of VDI.
